|Desk Organiser in Use!|
Background: This is the students second print, using Tinkercad as a design project. The student was assisted by other students who had produced work from the classroom and was looking to refine her design to produce an object that was useable and achieved the purpose of creating a pencil desk organiser.
Level of Difficulty - This was medium - the issue was the lettering/font that went with the shape. The basic design was a default design from Tinkercad from the main interface. Once the shape had been measured and identified the only issue was the stretching of of the shape.
Size: 8cmx10cm with a height of 10cm.
Timeframe: Nine Hours on a regular print setting with a 8mm nozzle.

Process: As with nearly everything else on site the student used Tinkercad which was then converted into a Cura 2.6 file, and then printed on regular settings with an Ultimaker 2+ Printer. (as noted on previous posts the previous nozzle was 4mm and we are now printing on a regular basis with a 8mm nozzle which is having a considerable and positive influence on the print times of the projects the students are working on.
What we would do differently: The student was extremely pleased with the print so much so she insisted on using the object even though it hadn't met the design brief. The student has every intention of repeating the process, this time with the lettering embedded into the print.
